arbcombo -- May 8th Public Workshop on ARBís Carbon Capture and Sequestration Program

Posted: 18 Apr 2017 10:57:37
The California Air Resources Board (ARB) invites you to
participate in a public workshop on ARBís Carbon Capture and
Sequestration (CCS) program. 

Carbon capture and sequestration can reduce lifecycle carbon
emissions from fuels by capturing and sequestering CO2 from fuel
production.  However, currently CCS projects cannot participate
in ARBís Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) program.  Staff is
currently developing amendments to the LCFS regulation.  As part
of these amendments we plan to include provisions and
requirements for how CCS projects can participate in the LCFS.   

At this workshop, ARB staff will present an overview of
activities taken by the CCS program in 2016, and an initial
concept of a Quantification Methodology (QM) and Permanence
Protocol for CCS.  

The workshop will be held at the following time and place:

Date:   Monday, May 8, 2017
Time:   1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Place:  Cal/EPA Headquarters Building
       Sierra Hearing Room, 2nd Floor
        1001 I Street
        Sacramento, California 95814

This workshop will also be webcast for participants unable to
attend in person.

Directions to Cal/EPA headquarters and public transit can be

Background:  Carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) is an
important strategy to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and
mitigate climate change.  CCS is a process by which large amounts
of carbon dioxide (CO2) are captured, compressed, transported,
and sequestered.  ARB is currently developing a quantification
methodology for CCS. As with other QMs, the CCS QM may be adopted
for use in the Cap-and-Trade and Low Carbon Fuel Standard
programs as determined appropriate in rulemaking(s) specific to
these programs.  Studies by the Intergovernmental Panel on
Climate Change (IPCC) and the California Council on Science and
Technology (CCST), have shown that CCS has the potential to
reduce carbon emissions by millions of metric tons, and may be an
integral part of meeting Californiaís long term climate goals.
